photo hunt: practical

themes · about ·


Picture this: you'd like to expand your restaurant and a palm tree is on the way. What you need is a practical solution: build around it! This is what a a local restaurant did and it looks like you see below. And yes: that's the Mediterranean Sea.



And here is another practical solution as seen in another fish restaurant in Barcelona: a fish skeleton as purse holder! Isn't this clever and just very practical for us ladies?
